I'm excited to announce that I will be co-facilitating a pet loss support group through the mental health initiative Bridging Rainbows! I had recently connected with the organization's founder, Dr. Kuhu Roy, through mutual connections within the animal writers and pet loss support communities.

Other Bridging Rainbows projects in the works include a documentary, shot bI'my Leading Lines Digital, about stray dogs in India; and a memoir, 'Delma, an ode to a senior stray dog,' and a collection of short stories, 'Tales of homing the un-homed.'

I will be posting more about all of Bridging Rainbows projects as they unfold. In the meantime, check out the organization's site!

Fellow WCY author, Sandy De Lisle, recently co-wrote and produced a movie: You're OUT! You're OUT! is a "modern-day National Lampoon's Vacation--with baseball. And a dog hero."

As a contributor this project, my dogs, Paulie and Jetty, will be getting an IMDb film credit! (Alas, my dream of becoming a 'stage mom' is being realized....)

​What excites me most about this venture is the message it promotes that all dogs, regardless of breed or life background, deserve a happy home.

More to come soon! In the meantime, check out the pitch below. (I was very honored to meet these actors at a table read I attended last week!)

I noticed that some of my Amazon reviews mention problems with the editing and formatting in Paulie the Piping Plover. I thought, that's odd. The book went through several rounds of editing with the publisher (which was not Who Chains You, but BookBaby). So, what happened?!

After looking into it, I realized that I the PDF (free) version that was in circulation was not the final version of the book; but rather, a draft from March 2019. D'oh, indeed! This was my own fault, as I was the one to upload it into the hub.

I contacted BookBaby just now, got the correct version of the book, uploaded it to the hub, and all is well.

I do want to point out, though, that the hardcover version of book is and has always been the *correct* (error-free) version. So if you purchase the book on Amazon, you will get this version. Phew!

(Now, if only I could move on and stop obsessing over the reviews that mention this...!)
